by Karlee Moore The Jones County EMS is the host to Simulated Reality, a driver simulator program, and they would like to extend the opportunity to experience the simulator to the public with an open house on Friday, May 3. The open house will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Jones County Ambulance shed, and will give members of the community to experience the consequences of distracted and impaired driving without the reality of harming themselves and others. The simulator has been in Murdo since April 22 and will be at the ambulance shed until May 9. The simulator is a driving machine that takes drivers through a course, asking them to perform basic driving procedures. The impaired driving option has an effect that will make the driver feel as if he or she is impaired. The screen gets harder to focus on, and the steering wheel seems to have less control from the driver. With the distracted driving option, drivers use their own cell phones to text, answering a series of questions while trying to navigate the course. The driving course is different each time and is faced with multiple obstacles that drivers would face in real life. For example, pedestrians are apt to walk in front of vehicles, deer dart across roadways, and construction cones make driving on the highway difficult. The simulator is so realistic that it takes drivers through all of the consequences of whichever type of accident they may experience during their turn at the wheel. EMT Tammy Van Dam took a turn and hit a pedestrian and not only was shown the view of the emergency room from an emergency room table as medical personnel worked on her, but also was taken through the court process to see how her impaired driving decision could impact the family of the

killed pedestrian. This program was made possible through the help of Bruce Eide of Vern Eide Motors. He bought two machines, a trailer and a pickup for the Sioux Empire Safety Village, stationed in Sioux Falls. The Office of Highway Safety also offsets the cost to transport the simulator to different events across the state. It will only cost the JC EMS $100 to have use for two to three weeks. The JC EMS encourages all members of the community to attend the open house and take a turn experiencing the simulator. as soon as the theater is back up and running. To help offset the cost, the Turner Youth will be providing food for Murdo in May on both Friday night and Sunday afternoon. Friday night, during the Main Street car show, the group will be serving brats and sauerkraut, as well as Indian Tacos. Dessert will be served by Modern Woodmen, who said that they will be donating the dessert proceeds to the Turner Youth Foundation. Sunday, they will be serving hamburgers, brats and hot dogs, as well as pie for dessert, during the auction. Another opportunity to donate to the youth will be during the July 20 Ranch Rodeo, where they will be serving concessions. by Karlee Moore Venard Inc. and Venard Powersports will be hosting an open house on Friday, May 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A one day only tire sale will take place on Friday, featuring savings of 10 to 20 percent on all tires.

Turner Community Center hopes to resume movies soon
By Karlee Moore The Turner Community Center has recently experienced technical problems, resulting in the theater being shut down for over a month. Kevin Moore said that the motherboard in the projector went out, and the warranty had expired. The equipment was shipped to the manufacturing company to be repaired. Moore said he believes the projector is repaired; however, the company needs to schedule a time to bring the projector back to have it reinstalled. The repair process is going to cost the Turner Youth Foundation anywhere between $3,000 and $4,000. The TYF would greatly appreciate the community coming out to watch movies and donating

David Venard said, “Come look the building over. Check out what we can still do and the new things we have to offer.” Kyle Venard will be on hand to discuss his addition to the business, Venard Powersports.

Story courtesy of the Austin Daily Herald, Austin, MN Lauren Schwab may not have finished her nursing degree, but she had a nurse’s mindset all along. “Her goal in life was to help people,” said her father, Pat Schwab. Lauren Elizabeth Schwab, 20, died Saturday night from complications of a pulmonary embolism, or a blood clot in the arteries of the lungs. To those who knew her, Lauren was the well-liked, smiling girl who loved spending time with her friends. She had a propensity for kindness and was quick to give a hug. “We talked every day, even when she was away at school,” said her mother, Beth Schwab. “She was full of life and encouragement.” Lauren was born April 24, 1992, in Amherst, N.Y. She attended Pacelli Catholic Elementary and then Austin High School, graduating in 2010. She attended Winona State University, and then Riverland Community College, pursuing a career in nursing. Today would have been her 21st birthday. In high school, Lauren took initiative and followed through when she set her sights on something, said AHS assistant principal Andrea Malo, who had Lauren in her history classes. “She was an outstanding person,” Malo said. “She was the type of person who would walk down the hallway and have a smile on her face … a real genuine person.” Lauren was active in school, Malo said. She sat on the student council, where she co-chaired school dances and helped organize food drives. She also attended her siblings’ school events to support them. Her sister Paiton is 12, and her brother Nathan attends the University of Minnesota. Kaycee Lukes, who now attends college in Madison, Wis., said Lauren had a great laugh and a smile that could cheer up anybody. “She wanted to be everybody’s friend,” Lukes said. “And she was, too.” Lukes and Lauren had met in

second grade at a classmate’s birthday party. “Ever since then, she’s been my best friend,” Lukes said. Sam Brucker is a friend of Lauren’s now attending the University of Minnesota. They met when they were freshmen at AHS. The two played basketball and golfed together for the Packers. Brucker said Lauren was full of courage and determination. “That really inspired me to be the best person I could be,” Brucker said. “She was an amazing person. She was really beautiful inside and out.” During and after high school, Lauren volunteered at the Red Cross, where she served on the board as a student representative. She also worked as a certified nursing assistant at Sacred Heart. “She loved taking care of the residents and she got quite attached to some of them,” Pat said. In the summers, she worked at Quality Pork Processors, where she did quality control inspections. She befriended many of her fellow employees there, and kept up with them while she was at college. At Winona State, she worked toward a nursing degree. She had recently returned to Austin to continue her studies through a partnership program between Winona and Riverland. About a week before she died, Pat said Lauren started to feel strong cramps and pains in her legs. They decided she should get it checked out. One night, before she had a chance to visit the doctor, Lauren’s health took a sudden turn for the worse. “She was doing some homework in our home, and started to complain of some chest pains,” Pat said. “She was coughing, had trouble breathing.” The family rushed her to the hospital, where doctors worked to help her before she passed away. An autopsy later confirmed a pulmonary embolism was the cause of death. The disease is a blockage of one or more arteries in the lungs, according to a Mayo Clinic website. In many cases, it can travel to the lungs from another part of the body, such as the legs. It can occur in otherwise healthy people who are immobile for long periods of time, such as during bed rest or long journeys, which can slow the circulation of blood and allow clots to form. Lauren had taken a trip to Seattle for spring break not long before she started feeling leg cramps, Pat said. “We will never know, but that could have been a blood clot,” he said. To that end, Pat hopes what happened to Lauren can do some good going forward. If even one person who hears about what happened uses that knowledge to catch a blood clot before it causes him or her too much harm, Pat said, it would be an outstanding achievement. Preventive measures could save a life. “It’s a simple test that you go in for,” he said. A doctor who spoke to Pat in the emergency room said cramps like the ones Lauren had could be signs of deeper problems. “He wished more people would

come in when they have these types of leg cramps and leg pains,” Pat said. Lauren’s friends found out she had passed away and quickly poured forth their support on her Facebook page. Beth said the response shows just how many friends she had. A number of those friends got up early the next morning, only hours later, and piled into cars. They drove from Minneapolis and Madison to Lauren’s home. “Sunday morning I had nine girls and one boy in my kitchen,” Pat said. Lukes was one of the family’s visitors. “It was a tough thing,” she said, adding the group was comforted by one another’s presence. Beth said they came to share memories of Lauren. “They all just needed to come to the house and talk about her,” she said. Memorials may be directed to the Lauren Schwab Scholarship Fund in care of the family. *Lauren Schwab was the granddaughter of Bill and Sherry Philips of Murdo.

Bill and Ellen Valburg picked up Ken Halligan of Pierre, and the three of them enjoyed the hilarious comedy “Fox on the Fairway”, put on by the Pierre Players Sunday afternoon. Well, I finally got-r-done – got a new knee, that is. That’s what I did last Monday, April 22 instead of calling for news. Our son, Brian, and daughter, Cara, came on Sunday to be with us. In hearing the weather report, we went to Pierre Sunday and got motel rooms as my surgery was early Monday morning. The weather man was right, there was snow – so glad we went the night before. Surgery went well and the doctor said ‘you have a shiny new knee,’ not that I got to see that. The kids stayed until Wednesday morning and then returned to Rapid City. Nelva kept a room, so during the stay he visited Alex and Jean Freier and had coffee and visits at Parkwood one day. I had calls, cards and company. Visitors while there besides my hubby were: Pastor Rick Hazen, Bessie Husband, Sandy Shay, my cousin Jean Wolff, son Chris and daughter Rayla from Huron (they were in town for an appointment), Rosa Lee Styles, Ray and Shirley Vik, Donald Volmer, Florence Christian and Wanda Mathews. We came home on Friday but went back to Pierre on Monday for an appointment and my first therapy session; it went well. I ran into Jackie Fosheim; she got a new knee a week before me, so we compared notes. Had a call from Sonny Tornow, seeing how I was and he also gave me the news about grandson Tyler Lanam, a senior at St. Thomas More. He was recently in the broadway production of “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” While in school, he has been in four musicals and four plays. He has been accepted to Northern State University, where he will major in music education and musical theater. He is the son of Darci and Kelly Lanam and grandson of Sonny and Evelyn. It’s a girl! Jeremy and Kayla Hoag became the proud parents of an eight pound, eight ounce baby girl born Tuesday, April 23 at Avera St. Lukes Hospital in Aberdeen. The little gal has been names Alexis Lee. Welcoming her home is big sister Sydney, grandparents Kim and Tony Schmidt, Peggy Blackwell of Pierre and Fred Hoag of Philip, and great grandpa Donald Volmer. Congratulations! Kim and Tony Schmidt went to Aberdeen on Friday returning home on Sunday. Little Sydney calls her “my baby” and wants to hold Alexis a lot, so sounds like she is a keeper. Our sympathy goes out to the family of Bob Anna. Bob passed away Wednesday, April 24, following a lengthy battle with cancer. Funeral services were held Saturday, April 27 in Durham, N.C. He will be buried in the Draper Cemetery at a later date. Bob is the husband of former Draperite Colleen Horsley. Helen Louder, Bev Nies, Lila Mae Christian and Velma Scott listened to the first and second graders read to them last Thursday, and then of course to the cafe for coffee and conversation. Dorothy and Brad Louder visited Dwight in Kadoka on Friday. They also visited Deanna Byrd, son Harvey and his daughter, Keena. Kathie Mason and Shelley Boehmer visited Eldon and Esther Magnuson on Saturday. In the afternoon, Short and Brandon Feddersen arrived to play cards with Eldon. Rosa Lee Styles and Margie Boyle were among the many that attended the mother-daughter banquet at the Murdo UMC last Wednesday evening. Rosa Lee reports that the decorations were very pretty and a nice time was had. (She brought me a cupcake and a nut goody cup.) Deepest sympathy to Bill and Sherry Philips and family in the loss of their granddaughter, Lauren. Pat Shinabarger of Rapid City and son Christopher Kruml and son Caiden of Miller were weekend guests of Lila Mae Christian. LeRoy and Cindy Louder stopped in Tuesday afternoon for a visit over coffee with Helen Louder. Susan and Charlie Hamer of Kennebec brought a carry-in dinner on Sunday to Dorothy and Brad Louder’s. The afternoon was spent with Susan cleaning house and some cards were played. Now that’s my kind of visitors! Had a get well call from Joyce Hammond on Sunday. She is in Texas at this time with son Steve. Steve spent a few days in the hospital, but is home now and doing well. Following church Sunday, Pastor and Jane Hazen, Alice Horsley, Don Volmer, Ray and Shirley Vik, Rosa Lee Styles and Margie Boyle, Lila Mae Christian and Pat Shinabarger had dinner together at a local cafe. I’ve missed many of you. Give me a call or email your news into the Coyote office at coyoteads @gwtc.net.

Harriet Roghair Noteboom passed away peacefully Friday night, April 26, 2013. Her services were scheduled for 10 a.m. MT Thursday, May 2 at the Presbyterian Church in Kadoka with Pastor Gary McCubbin officiating. She was 96 years old, refused to be hospitalized, and just that afternoon had visited with Elaine Roghair and baby Jack Henry Roghair, who will be one year old on May 4. Other visitors that afternoon were Bob and Bessie Roghair, Pastor McCubbin and Harriet’s very dear friend, Shorty Ireland, who stayed by her side until late evening. This reporter will miss her cheerful attitude, her willingness to share the past and her faithful looking forward to being with Jesus and Uncle Dick. I can imagine they were there to greet her when she stepped from earth to glory. We sorrow not as those who have no hope. Jessie Harrison was home from Sunshine Bible Academy over the weekend and took part in the Variety Show Saturday night at the auditorium. The baby chicks have arrived at Mel’s Place. It must finally be spring. Your prayers are requested for Mel’s niece, Caren of Iowa, who was mauled by two pit bull dogs Sunday evening. Extensive restructuring of her face was in progress when the phone call came here. Thank the Lord, for the healing He is already sending. And, on the other hand, we praise God for sparing the life of Kristine Waters, daughter of Bob and Bessie Roghair. While stopped behind a pickup in road construction, another vehicle plowed into her car, taking out every window except the windshield and badly crumpling the rear end. Kristine, though badly bruised, walked away from the accident.

Avera St. Mary’s Hospital plans for the future
Avera St. Mary’s Hospital has contracted with BWBR Architects, Inc. of St. Paul, Minn., to assist in developing a master facilities development and improvement plan that will address how Avera St. Mary’s can best meet the health care needs of central South Dakota. “Now is the perfect time for Avera St. Mary’s to look to the future and plan for the expansion of services to meet the region's needs,” said John T. Porter, President & CEO, Avera Health. “The people of central South Dakota look to Avera and Avera St. Mary’s to provide quality care. We in turn need to take a close look at what additional care we need to provide in Pierre to make a positive impact in their lives and health.” The master facility plan will
Okaton, South Dakota, in 1925. After graduating from high school, Harriet took nurses training in Chamberlain, South Dakota. She spent several years working in hospitals, doctor’s offices, and home health care. On November 23, 1953, Harriet married Dick Noteboom in Tokyo, Japan. They lived in Tokyo after their marriage, then moved to Lawton, Oklahoma, and later to Sun City, Arizona. Harriet and Dick traveled to California, Florida, Alaska, and many National Parks, visiting family and friends along the way. November 1979 found them moving back to Okaton, the place they both grew up. Harriet moved to Kadoka in 2007 after the death of her husband Dick on November 11, 2007, where she has since resided. Harriet is survived by a sister Gertrude Vander Schaaf and her husband John of Orange City, Iowa; two brothers Theodore Roghair of Louisville, Kentucky, and Robert Roghair and his wife
Bessie of Okaton; many nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and nephews; and a special friend Shorty Ireland of Kadoka. In addition to her husband Dick, Harriet was preceded in death by her parents; four brothers Edward, Jacob, William and Albert; and four sisters Janett, Hilda, Alice and Joanna. Visitation will be held one hour preceding the services at the church. Funeral services will be held 10:00 a.m. Thursday, May 2, at the Presbyterian Church in Kadoka, with Pastor Gary McCubbin officiating.

Lauren E. Schwab, 20 of Austin, died Saturday, April 20, 2013, at Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Austin. Lauren Elizabeth Schwab was born April 24, 1992, in Amherst, N.Y. to Patrick and Elizabeth (Philips) Schwab. Lauren, our LoLo, was a gift of joy and inspiration to everyone who knew her. She attended St.A’s Elementary school and graduated from Austin High School in 2010. Her positive impact on our community began early with her active involvement in many school clubs and organizations, where her genuine, warmhearted, bubbly personality gained her many friends. Upon graduation, Lauren pursued her passion of becoming a nurse at Winona State University in Winona and Riverland in Austin. It was a very fitting career path for someone who was devoted to helping and caring for others-always. She was a very avid babysitter for many families, a member of the Red Cross Board, a Red Cross volunteer and a devoted
nursing assistant to the residents of Sacred Heart Care facility. Her co-workers at QPP praised her not only for her meticulous attention to detail in QC, but for her willingness to help others whether it was related to the job or not. Nothing can compare to the caring, concern and love Lauren showed for her close-knit family. She was cheerleader, comedian, advisor, fun-loving adversary and ROCK to her beloved siblings Nathan and Paiton. She followed the great role models of her parents, Beth and Pat to a new level as she matured and developed into the kind, sincere, independent young woman she was when God called her home. Lauren encouraged them to sign up as a family for a mission trip to Guatemala this coming July. It would have been a perfect complement to some of their traditional family fun adventures to Vail, Colo., and Green Bay Packer Games—but this time fulfilling her desire to care for and help others. Lauren’s million dollar smile, trademark, contagious laughter, melt your heart big brown eyes and bear hugs are the physical characteristics we will miss most about her. But transcending that was her innate ability to make everyone she met feel special and valued. She took the time to talk, listen, care, and help.

Gleanings from the Prairie
Tears had no place in the universe before sin came in, and they will have no place in the new heaven and the new earth. The first appearance of human sorrow is found in Gen.3:16 when Adam and Eve were about to be expelled from Eden. It runs like a dark thread through Scripture until the triumphant announcement is made at last, “There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying” (Rev.21:4). GOD, Who loves us, is moved by our sorrows. The first tears recorded in the Bible were shed by a poor mother as she wept over her child, and by the child as he lay on the ground in a wilderness place. GOD heard the voice of weeping and revealed that this period of suffering would be followed by the unfolding of a life of great blessing (Gen.21:14-20).
GOD Shall Wipe Away All Tears
The first tears in the New Testament are found in Matthew 2:18, “Rachel weeping for her children.” Not only did GOD take note of this tragic incident, HE even spoke of it 600 years before it took place (Jer.31:15). When King Hezekiah was sick the LORD said to him, “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears” (II Kings 20:5). David prayed, “Give ear unto my cry; hold not your peace at my tears” (Psalm 39:12). The psalmist wrote, “You have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from falling” (Psalm 116:18). It is wonderful to read that our suffering SAVIOR said to a mother whose son had died, “Weep not,” and again to a father whose daughter had died, “Weep not.” In both cases HE restored their children to them, in token of

what HE will do for all HIS people some day (Luke 7:13; 8:52). Tragic though they are, the sufferings of this present time are only temporary. “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). We wait for that day when death, sorrow, crying and pain will be gone forever, when “the former things are passed away” (Rev.21:4). Only the eternal GOD could be the author of statements like these. HE Who always sees our tears when our hearts are broken is the GOD Who will forever wipe away all tears from our eyes. We must look to JESUS, Who said, “I am the Resurrection and the Life; he who believes in ME, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whoever lives and believes in ME shall never die” (John 11:25-26).

Peace And Access by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ; by whom also we have access…” (Rom. 5:1,2). “Being justified… we have peace with God”! What a priceless blessing! We believers are prone to take this blessing altogether too much for granted. Since the day we trusted Christ and the burden of sin rolled away, most of us have never had another question about our eternal destiny. Hence the danger of taking our salvation for granted. We often fail to appreciate sufficiently what it means to be able to arise in the morning, go about our business during the day and give ourselves up to unconsciousness at night, always assured that through our Lord’s redemptive work we have “peace with God” and our eternal destiny is secure. Surely this knowledge should overwhelm our hearts with constant gratitude and have a profound effect upon our daily conduct. The companion blessing to “peace with God” is our full and free access into His presence: another blessing of grace far too little appreciated. Think of the wonder of our free access to God; how He, the Ruler of the Universe, invites us to come confidently before His “throne of grace” at our convenience — “in time of need.” “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16). We should never forget that this high privilege was purchased for us by the precious blood of Christ, and that having thus been purchased, it is His will that we believers avail ourselves of “this grace.” Could there be greater proof of His love for us? “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, “…a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh. “….Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith…” (Heb. 10:19-22).

Using tick repellent and regularly checking for ticks are the keys to preventing tularemia, Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses, says a state health official. “Spring means more time outdoors and more risk for tick-borne diseases,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “Every year in South Dakota we see cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, ehrlichiosis and Lyme disease – all tick-borne illnesses.” In 2012 the department investigated four cases of Lyme disease, five of tularemia and one ehrlichiosis. All four cases of Lyme disease had out-of state tick exposure. The Ioxdes deer tick that carries Lyme disease prefers heavily forested areas In Wisconsin and Minnesota, so most areas of South Dakota are not suitable habitat for the species. A 2011 tick survey conducted by Dr. Michael Hildreth, a professor in the departments of Biology and Microbiology and Veterinary and Biomedical Science at SDSU did not find deer ticks in the locations tested. However, a deer tick was sent to Dr. Buyung Hadi, SDSU Extension Urban Entomologist last fall from Roberts County in northeastern South Dakota. To determine whether deer ticks are becoming established in the state, individuals finding ticks are encouraged to send specimens for identification to Dr. Hadi at: Dr. Buyung Hadi, Pesticide Education and Urban Entomology Coordinator SAG 224 Box 2207A South Dakota State University Brookings, SD 57007 Phone: (605) 688-6784; Cell: (605) 690-4289 Tick samples should be sent within a small bottle sealed with tape. DO NOT crush the sample or put the tick on tape. Make sure that your name, phone number and date of submission are attached to the bottle. If sending the sample via post, pack the vial in a padded envelope or cardboard containers. Ticks will be identified but not tested for Lyme disease. The 2011 tick survey did find plentiful numbers of Dermacentor dog ticks. While the dog tick doesn’t carry Lyme disease, it does transmit Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, tularemia and ehrlichiosis, so people should protect themselves from this tick species Tick bites are usually painless and appear as a small red bump with a bright red halo. To remove an attached tick, use tweezers or a tissue and pull slowly and steadily, being careful not crush it. Then apply antiseptic to the site to prevent infection. If you use bare hands to remove a tick, wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap. Avoid touching your eyes before washing. Tick-borne illness symptoms include sudden onset of a moderate-to-high fever, stiff neck, deep muscle pain, arthritis, fatigue, severe headache, chills, a rash on the arms and legs or around the site of the bite, and swollen lymph nodes, particularly in the neck. If you develop any of these symptoms after a tick bite, see your doctor. With Rocky Mountain spotted fever the illness does not start immediately after the tick bite, but typically 5 to 10 days after the tick attachment. When outdoors, repel ticks by tucking your pants into your socks and spraying clothes and any exposed skin with a tick repellent. Other precautions include: •Check frequently for ticks when outside, especially the scalp and folds of skin. Ticks need to be attached for several hours to spread infection so you can significantly cut your risk by checking for and removing ticks right away. •Check small children thoroughly and often for ticks when they've been outside or have had contact with pets or livestock that may have ticks. •Ask your veterinarian about appropriate insecticides and collars to protect pets from ticks and limit the number they carry into the home. For added protection, apply insecticides and tick repellents to your pet's bedding. •Check your animals frequently for ticks. To remove ticks from animals, apply constant traction with forceps or tweezers. If you must use your fingers, wear disposable gloves then wash hands thoroughly with soap and water. Fact sheets on specific tickborne diseases can be found on the Department of Health web site at http://doh.sd.gov/DiseaseFacts/.

State Fair & Sherwin Linton want South Dakota talent
The Centennial Stage at the South Dakota State Fair is always a popular attraction with the Sherwin Linton Show performing three times daily. “A big part of each show is the many guest performers that we feature as opening acts with our performances at 11 a.m., 2 and 4 p.m. each day,” Linton said. “Some of these guests have been on our shows for several years, but each year we look for new talent among South Dakota entertainers. This is a wonderful opportunity for South Dakota musicians, singers and entertainers to perform at a major South Dakota venue.” The State Fair and Linton are looking for individuals and groups who would like to be considered as guests on the Centennial Stage at the 2013 South Dakota State Fair. Interested entertainers are asked to submit a DVD or CD, a brief bio and photo to: South Dakota State Fair Attn: Sherwin Linton 890 3rd Street Southwest Huron, SD 57350 All submissions must be received by June 1, 2013.

Schaefer, from Kennebec, is the wife of Representative Jim Schaefer. Schaefer started her speech by telling an animated story of Cinderella for the young ladies and concluded by reminding the women that, “It is during this time that we are building our character to become princesses for the Lord.” Nicki Kell then sang A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes from Disney’s Cinderella. She was accompanied by Marilyn Seymour on the piano. Following Kell’s performance, Nash shared 10 positive characteristics from Disney princesses, which are as follows. Cinderella taught us to be strong, as she didn’t let life’s circumstances get her down. Belle from The Beauty and the Beast taught us to be unique because she could see beauty behind a face different from hers. Jasmine taught us of independence, and not being afraid to venture into the unknown. Aurora from Sleeping Beauty taught us to be loving and kind. Ariel from The Little Mermaid taught us that it is okay to be curious intrigued by the unknown. Mulan was a fighter and taught us to fight for what we believe in. Pocahontas taught us how to be accepting and see past social barriers. Rapunzel taught us to be discerning, to gather strength and to use our own judgement. Snow White taught us how to be humble, and Tiana from the Princess and the Frog taught us determination, and to do everything we can to achieve our goals. The traditional awards presentation wrapped up the banquet. Rose Elrod won the award for having the most grandchildren, June Nix received an award for having the most granddaughters with her at the banquet with seven, and Marj Strait, with 65 years under her belt, won the award for being married the longest.

Finally, after what we hope is the last snowstorm of the season, temperatures have warmed and allowed the winter wheat to break dormancy, or in some cases, germinate. In a quick windshield survey on April 26, with a few stops to look closer, and visiting with a few producers, it seems that some of the winter wheat planted into low residue situations is up and can be rowed in south-central South Dakota, while others are more in question. As temperatures warm over the next few days, wheat that is alive will grow rapidly and allow producers to assess its condition and their stands and make decisions. The general consensus is that winter wheat yields will be down, even with adequate stands, and planting date studies would support that. Late/dormant planted winter wheat, which would be similar to much of the crop this year, has typically yielded 20-30 percent less than wheat planted at the recommended time in good conditions. The extent of the yield reduction will depend heavily on moisture and temperatures during May and June. Some producers have reported that spring wheat planted before the recent snow storms have already sprouted and may be farther along than some of the winter wheat. That is also consistent with research comparisons as dormant planted or early planted spring wheat is often ahead of dormant/late-planted winter wheat. The wheat crop, and other crops for that matter, is also in a tenuous situation regarding soil moisture. Upon probing several fields on April 26, moisture was found down to about 12”, below that it was dry. Timely rains will be needed for whatever crop is planted to There will be Winter Wheat, but How Much? succeed. To add insult to injury, stripe rust is reported to continue its development in southern states. Stripe rust was first reported in Oklahoma on April 17, and on April 26 was said to be more common. Leaf rust was also first reported in Oklahoma on April 11, but hasn’t developed to the extent of stripe rust. With the early development of leaf and stripe rust in southern states and the South Dakota wheat crop significantly behind in progress, rusts will have a much longer time period to infect the crop than normal. Producers may be faced with the decision as to applying fungicides or not. One of the important factors in making foliar fungicide application decisions is yield potential. Economic return to foliar fungicides is often measured in bushels, but if a yield increase occurs, it is typically a percentage of yield over an untreated check. The return on a field with 30 Bu/acre yield potential would be expected to be much less than a field with 60 or more Bu/acre potential. Every field may not have blank spots in them, but a quick survey of fields on April 26 showed a number with less than uniform stands. If that proves to be the case, weed control may be an important issue. Can you still plant spring wheat? The latest recommended seeding date is about May 10-May 15, moving from south to north. These dates can also be applied to oats. The final planting date for spring wheat and oat crop insurance is May 5 for the south half and May 15 for the north half of South Dakota. 5/2/2013 – PAT Certification Meeting, 1:00 pm, Phoenix Center, Main St., Onida, SD 5/14-15 – Spring Extension Conference, Brookings, SD Calendar

Welcome to the Spring Taste of Home Cooking School
The Chamberlain/Oacoma Sun, along with Cedar Shore Resort, Al’s Oasis and Andy’s Appliance are proud to present the Spring Taste of Home Cooking Show Saturday, May 11, at Cedar Shore Resort. “We’re so excited to bring this national cooking show back to the Chamberlain/Oacoma area for the second year in a row” said Sun publisher Lucy Halverson. According to Halverson, the show will provide a great way for daughters to spend the day with their mothers. “Treat your mother to a fun day out,” said Halverson. “She'll thank you!” Local auctioneer and realtor Chisum Peterson will be the show’s announcer, introducing sponsors, drawing for door prizes and helping the Taste of Home chef as he prepares ten delicious recipes from the stage. One special attendee, drawn from all the tickets sold, will be awarded “a special cooking show seat” a comfortable, overstuffed chair from The Other Side of the Fence placed in front of the stage. Culinary specialist Guy Klinzing had such a good time at the Chamberlain/Oacoma show last year that he is making a return trip to share more tips and techniques for ways to use fresh ingredients in preparing simple meals for family and friends. During the cooking show guests will learn ten irresistible recipes that can easily be recreated at home, including; Creamy Jalapeno Soup, Stuffed Baby Red Potatoes, Mango Lime Pie, French Onion Pizza au Gratin, Spicy Gazpacho Salad, and Pineapple Upside-Down Cupcakes. After the recipes are prepared and displayed, the food along with serving dishes, will be given away to lucky participates as part of the afternoon’s festivities. Guests are sure to leave this fun and entertaining cooking show event with new knowledge and skills they can use in their own kitchens, plus a goodie bag full of product samples, promotional items and coupons from national and local show sponsors. “We had a successful show last year and plan to have a bigger one this year,” said Jenny DuFrain, Cedar Shore Resort Sales and Marketing Manager. “We have more vendors offering a varied selection of products for your shop-
Is it any wonder that Rome fell? If they couldn’t come up with a better numerical system than Roman numerals, what hope was there for the empire? To me, anyway, this is the most cumbersome and hopeless system imaginable. The current year, for example, is MMXIII. (M=1,000, X=10, I=1. Just add them all up.) Son Chance was born in MCMLXXXVI. By the way, C=100, L=50 and V=5. You also have to know that a smaller value before a larger requires subtraction so CM=900. I see no reason to use Roman numerals since they are mostly used to make you think the user is learned, I guess. What other reason could there be? If you look in the front of many books to see when it was published, that date will often be given with a string of letters maybe starting with MCM or MM. Even the construction date of many buildings is inscribed in stone over doorways using Roman numerals. Oof! This all came to mind the other day when I encountered part of a computer game where a clock used Roman numerals. You were supposed to arrange the numbers on the clock face correctly which is confusing when you have to rotate the clock to do it. IV and VI are hard to keep straight upside down as are XI and IX. Fortunately, if I don’t feel like dealing with that, I can wait about a minute until a little sign comes up asking me if I would like to skip that part of the game. The skipping option frequently gets my vote. It also occurred to me lately that doing math with Roman numerals must be fairly tricky. I looked it up on the Internet to see if it was even possible, and it is, but you probably don’t want to know about it. It gets complicated early on. The Romans used an abacus for knotty computations, but that was no piece of cake either. It’s even worse than algebra by quite a bit. I recently read a little quip that went, “And then Satan said, ‘Put the alphabet in math’.” This would apply to algebra with its proverbial x and y and whatnot. Come to think of it, I haven’t used any algebra recently or in fact for many years going back. Knowing algebra is about as useful to me as knowing what year they signed

the Magna Carta. Algebra, however, is a piece of cake compared to other forms of math such as “differential equations.” I saw some textbook problems on those last year and couldn’t make heads or tails of them. They not only used English letters, but also a few Greek ones plus symbols for square root, pi, and who knows what else. It looked totally incomprehensible at first glance and would probably stay that way even after many glances for many of us. Luckily, I can still balance my checkbooks without using any form of advanced math. Some of this boils down to the particular talents and abilities we happen to have. I obviously am not gifted when it comes to math. Friend Loren, on the other hand, was the guy whose textbook on differential equations I happened to look at last year. He appears to be comfortable with math and will graduate with an engineering degree this week. Spelling, grammar, and English composition, though, are not his things. He gets by with those, but they don’t come naturally to him. I, conversely, enjoy words and putting them together. Sometimes I even get accused of using too many big words. I read a quote recently where a fellow said, “I love using big words to sound smart. I mean utilizing gargantuan idioms to fabricate intelligence.” Well, I don’t use vocabulary to sound smart, but I happen to know certain words that seem to convey exactly what I’m trying to say and sometimes they’re big. As teachers might say, “If you don’t know what a word means, you can always look it up.” There used to be a commentator on TV, William F. Buckley Jr., who used so many huge words so often that it could be difficult to figure out what on earth the man was talking about. You couldn’t look up the words fast enough to make sense of what he was saying. I’ll try to avoid going that far, but an occasional difficult word may creep in. By the way, if you were trying to figure what year son Chance was born by the Roman numerals given above, it was 1986. See there. Isn’t “1986” a lot cleaner and nicer than “MCMLXXXVI?” I hope to shout it is, or at least it is to me.
Wishes are Rapid Chevrolet Cadillac, Toyota of the Black Hills, Upper Deck Architects, Trusted Choice, NewsCenter1, Rapid City Journal and KOTA Radio. For more information about the walk please call Melanie Barclay at 791.4500, email mbarclay@ southdakota.wish.org or visit walkrapidcity.org. Make-A-Wish South Dakota grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The chapter serves the entire state with a main office in Sioux Falls and a field office in Rapid City. To qualify for a wish, children need to between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 and facing a life-threatening medical condition at the time of referral. More than 40 wishes have been granted since September 2012, with more than 65 kids in the process of receiving a wish. The average cost of a wish is nearly $7,000. On average, 25 percent of wishes are for children who live in the Black Hills region. Find out more at southdakota.wish.org

Watch future articles for additional information. ary 19, 2013. The DCP sign-up period will end on August 2, 2013 and the ACRE sign-up period will end on June 3, 2013. The 2013 DCP and ACRE program provisions are unchanged from 2012, except that all eligible participants may choose to enroll in either DCP or ACRE for the 2013 crop year. This means that eligible producers who were enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may elect to enroll in DCP in 2013 or may reenroll in ACRE in 2013 (and vice versa). Stop by or call the office for an appointment. Advanced payments are not authorized. The DCP/ACRE Appendix does have the following language that everyone needs to be aware of: Payments are subject to the availability of funds, compliance with all applicable laws and statutory changes and to limits on payments as may be provided for in the program regulations. It is specifically understood that any payments under this Appendix and the programs to which it applies are subject to statutory and regulatory changes including those that occur after the signing of the contract. Payments under the DCP and ACRE programs may be reduced by a certain percentage due to a sequester order required by Congress and issued pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985. Should a payment reduction be required, FSA will provide notice about the required percent of payment reduction that applies to direct, countercyclical and ACRE payments. The lady was a 52-year old athlete. She jogged several miles a day, ran a half marathon every spring and was a full-time whitecollar employee with a local firm. In her mind, she was a picture of health and yet when a blood pressure screening was done, at her place of employment, she was found to have a blood pressure of 170/95. She was warned that she needed to see a healthcare professional and get her blood pressure lowered. She took no medications of any kind. At the time of her first visit, a detailed history and physical examination along with multiple laboratory studies were done. It was seen that her heart muscle was somewhat thickened consistent with her heart having had to pump against the high blood pressure for a long period of time. She was given a medication to get her blood pressure down, instructed to get a blood pressure cuff of her own and take her own blood pressure four times a day in various different situations. On her return two weeks later, her blood pressure was better controlled but she said that she felt terrible attributing her ill ease to the medication she was taking. She wanted to know if there wasn’t something else she could do beside take a medication. So we went through other things that tend to raise blood pressure. Specifically, she seemed to sleep well without problems of sleep apnea. She was not overweight. She did not seem to have an inordinately stressful occupational situation and her family life was satisfactory and stable. We then started to talk about diet and that is where we found one thing, at least, that might make a big difference. The patient was seen by the dietitian and a detailed dietary history obtained.

According to multiple national health agencies, the recommended daily salt intake for the general population is no more than six grams per day. For a person with high blood pressure, the recommended daily salt intake is no more than four grams per day. There next had to be an education regarding which foods are high in salt. She volunteered that she loved doritos and ate a handful every time she walked through the kitchen. In addition, her schedule was very busy and she tended to fast foods and prepared sliced canned products. These are all rich sources of salt in a person’s diet. This type of eating results in a large amount of salt arriving on the table before the patient even picks up a salt shaker. The patient was educated extensively regarding dietary considerations and basically cut her salt consumption in half. Within two months of doing this, her blood pressure was down to 120/80 without a medication. While our health agencies have recommended salt restriction for the general population, it is really only an essential consideration for those with high blood pressure, heart failure, or diabetes. In these three groups, very clearly salt restriction does decrease medical complications such as stroke, heart attack, and kidney failure. Salt restriction seems to work by lowering blood pressure which is the critical number to keep track of. Ideally, a person’s blood pressure is 120/80 with morbidity and mortality curves increasing rapidly with pressures 140/90 or more. If one is to take it upon themselves to decrease salt intake as the basis for better health, it should be done slowly over months of time dropping out high salt content foods a few at a time or one at a time. A sudden severe drop in salt intake may actually cause rebound hypertension rather than a slow decrease in blood pressure as desired. Thus like many things in medicine, moderation is key. For those who are trying to monitor salt content of their food, it can be noted that most labels on prepared foods report the “sodium content” of the food. To help with calculations, sodium is about 40 percent the weight of salt. Thus, a gram of salt has about 0.4 grams of sodium. A two and one-half gram salt diet which is the national recommendation has about two and one-half grams of sodium. Thus, when a person obtains a can or package of food from the grocery store, adding up the total amount of sodium listed on the labels can be multiplied by two and one-half to give the total amount of salt in that food. As a last note, decreasing salt intake is a way of decreasing a person’s blood pressure. If a person’s blood pressure is consistently in the normal range or less, salt restriction really plays no part. Salt restriction is important for those with high blood pressure and especially important in those with congestive heart failure, and diabetes. As a final note, I have tried a low salt diet while in training 50 years ago. As physicians in training, we had to order a diet for a person as they came into the hospital. So we would order a “low salt diet” for people with heart failure, a “no added spice diet” for people with ulcers, a “low residue diet” for those with intestinal problems, etc. In order for us to better understand what we were doing to our patients, the hospital dieticians invited us to lunch once a month. Then we would be fed one of the diets we ordered for hospital patients. A low salt diet was like eating cardboard. I swore I would not eat like that again on purpose. Speaking for myself, pills for high blood pressure make life a whole lot better as compared to a low salt diet.

SD Game, Fish & Parks creates more pheasant hunting opportunities in Western South Dakota
Steam rises off their backs as the small flock of pheasants peck at the cracked corn strewn atop the snow. It’s a crisp, cold March morning and John Kanta is waiting for just the right moment to drop the net. “This is the best time of year to trap pheasants because the birds are looking for feed,” says the Regional Wildlife Manager with S.D. Game, Fish & Parks (GF&P). Kanta releases the net and together with the help of wildlife resource biologist, Kevin Hoffman, they carefully place the birds into traveling crates. The 61 pheasants captured this morning within Huron's city limits will make the 360-mile trek across the state to their new home; a 6,000-acre parcel of land resting on the shores of the Cheyenne River and adjacent to Angostura Reservoir, known as the Hill Ranch Game Production Area (GPA). This pheasant release, Kanta explains, is part of an effort to increase pheasant hunting opportunities in the Western half of South Dakota. “South Dakota is a destination for pheasant hunting - we have the largest population of pheasants and we lead the charge for pheasant hunting in the U.S; however, when you look at pheasant hunting state-wide, Western South Dakota has far fewer pheasants than areas along the Missouri River and the eastern portion of the state,” Kanta says. “We want to expand the pheasant hunting opportunities into Western South Dakota.” Developing pheasant-friendly habitat is key to accomplishing this task explains Mike Kintigh, regional supervisor for South Dakota GF&P. “We can’t just release a bunch of birds and expect them to thrive. First we have to develop the habitat, then we can introduce the pheasants,” Kintigh says. “This way we create a sustainable system that is good for our state’s wildlife and good for the hunters whose license dollars support these projects.” When GF&P purchased the land in 2010, the Hill Ranch property had the potential to support a large pheasant population. Unfortunately, much of the open meadow land had been planted to alfalfa or hayed which resulted in the Fall River County land being unable to provide the nesting cover that the pheasants needed, explains Hoffmann. “Nesting cover is essential to pheasants because it protects them and their eggs from predators,” Hoffmann says. Over the last three years, GF&P has worked to develop nesting cover by planting about 360 acres to a diversity of warm and cool season native grasses. Hoffmann explains that native grasses serve multiple purposes providing predator protection for chicks and hens as well as a year-
round food source and vital thermal cover for the birds during the winter months. Because of its close proximity to two water sources, the department has been able to utilize irrigation to help establish the grasses in the midst of a drought. Along with nesting cover, the team also seeded 100 acres into food plots of millet, grain and forage sorghum. This will not only encourage the growing pheasant population, but also serve the existing populations of wild turkey, grouse, mule deer, whitetail deer and elk which thrive on the diverse landscape that includes wooded areas along with open meadows. “Because of the habitat diversity found on this land, this area offers a variety of hunting opportunities,” says Hoffmann, adding that by the 2013 pheasant opener, hunters should notice a dramatic increase in pheasant numbers. The department plans to continue catching wild pheasants in areas where populations are high, but hunting isn’t allowed - like within Huron city limits - and releasing them on the Hill Ranch property in 2014 and 2015 as well. Kanta says they release wild birds instead of pen-raised birds because their survival rates are greater. To learn more about hunting opportunities throughout South Dakota, visit gfp.sd.gov.
Dan Altman on fish possession limits
by Dan Altman, Conservation Officer Most anglers are familiar with the fact that there are daily catch limits established for different fish species at statewide and local levels. However, some anglers are not as familiar with fish possession limits and how they apply. This is evident by the number of questions I field from anglers each year regarding the topic. It is my goal to help clarify the law so you don’t find yourself in hot water this year. A daily fish harvest limit is defined as the number of fish an angler may take from midnight to midnight in a calendar day. A single person may not possess more than one day’s limit of fish while on the water or ice or actively engaged in fishing. This deters poachers from cleaning fish while still actively fishing and claiming those cleaned fish to a previous day. A fish possession limit is defined as the number of fish a person may have under their direct or indirect control. Control constitutes vehicles, portable coolers, home freezers, and commercial cold storage. With a few exceptions possession limits are statewide and cumulative no matter how many different bodies of water are fished in any given length of time. Many anglers adhere to daily limits but are unaware that fish stored at home in their freezer are subject to possession limits. If an angler’s freezer is searched and several possession limits are found for that angler, they are subject to the same fines they would have received for exceeding their daily limit. I’ll give an example of how daily and possession limits are designed to work: An angler schedules a three day fishing trip to the Missouri River at Chamberlain. The angler catches two walleye on his first day fishing, cleans the fish and stores them in his freezer. The second day the angler catches his daily limit (4 walleye) and quits fishing. On the third day the anglers returns to the water and catches two more walleye. He is at his possession limit of 8 walleye and at this point and cannot keep any more unless he eats some fish or

legally gifts fish to another person. On several occasions I’ve heard people justify why they do not adhere to daily or possession limits. The most common statement I hear is “I went fishing several times and didn’t take a limit home so I kept twice as many this time”. My answer to that statement is; That’s why it’s called fishing! Daily and fish possession limits are in place so our fishing waters and resources are not exhausted. Each angler deserves equal opportunity to harvest fish and is robbed of the opportunity when other anglers do not adhere to daily and possession limits. We can all agree upon the fact that catching fish is fun, but next time you get ready to place a fish on your stringer ask yourself two questions. “Do I need to keep this fish and will I utilize this fish?” If the answer to either of these questions is “no” practice catch and release. You, another angler, or someone’s child may get the excitement of catching that same fish in the future. If you have any questions regarding daily or possession limits feel free to get in contact with me at 895-2138. Stay safe and we’ll see you on the water this spring.
